This would have been a perfect in-ear if it wasn't for the cable noise damn it!  

tell me about it...

Audio Technica having microphonic cables is like Volvo making a car with tremendously annoying sounds every time you change gear.

Yeah there's a ton of cable-noise, lol. It's fine if you can secure the cable somehow.

Just in 20 minutes ago and so far im enjoying them. A bit smoother than my ckm77 with more detailed mids to boot. Treble is very nice. The lows are just right and not lacking at all. What surprised me most is the comfort and the intimacy of this baby. It really draws you in to the music. Whatever genre your playing. For the current price they are selling, id give 2 thumbs up! Dsnuts! you da man once again! Time for some burn in hehe

That kinda sucks. But let me put it this way. The CKM77 cost around $125 and the CKM99 cost $180 or so. The CKM500 are better than both so you are getting your monies worth in sound but that still kinda sucks.. Where you live that they are taxing you like that.??
